    Devil Rays (All-Star Break)The Devil Rays defense is a lot worse than we originally thought. Yesterday we linked to Vegas Watch which blames a lot of the team’s pitching woes on the team defense. We thought that was a bit of an anomaly and assumed the defense had at least […]

    Royals 12, Devil Rays 4. 5 innings, 100 pitches. When we look back on the 2007 season, that could be the opening line. 5 innings, 100 pitches. The rest of the rotation (outside of James Shields) has been awful, but that was no surprise. The bullpen has been vomit-inducing, but […]

    Red Sox 7, Devil Rays 5.10 straight losses as we near the All-Star break. At one point this season the Devil Rays had three of the ten worst starting pitchers in baseball in their rotation and yet they were only 4 games below The Charlie Hough Line (.500). Since, then […]

    Indians 3, Devil Rays 2. On a day when the Rays would lose their season-high seventh straight game, there was some good news that came from the Devil Rays clubhouse. While one could argue that there were 3-4 players with statistics more worthy of the All-Star game, when manager Jim […]

    White Sox 5, Devil Rays 3.2008…2008…2008…We still don’t know what to think about this team. We braced ourselves for what we knew would be a trying season. The team was talented, but it was very young, which means we knew they would be inconsistent. The team still had enormous holes […]
